Madonna and Divine performing at The Copa on the same Memorial Day Weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on May 28th and 29th, 1984.
It’s gay heaven. A piece of queer history captured!
This is EPIC, folks. EPIC!
New Madonna tracks hit the web this week, but calm down, they are not songs Madonna is currently working in the studio for her anticipated new album.
These tracks were written and recorded for her iconic EROTICA album, released in 1992. Demos and unreleased tracks from the “Erotica” recording sessions are known as THE RAIN TAPES.
Over the last 22 years, these tracks have been slowly leaking. This week, two songs hit the web: SHAME (which most people believed never existed) and YOU ARE THE ONE.
"Shame" was written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone, while "You Are the One" was written by Madonna, Shep Pettibone and Tony Shimkin.
I loved both of these tracks, but “Shame” is freaking awesome. It truly shows how Madonna was ahead of her time (dance music from the mid-90s totally followed the sound she was making in 1991/1992).
As Shep Pettibone said on his Facebook page when he heard about the leak: "What a shame "Shame" wasn’t released!"
Listen to these two tracks below:
And speaking of new Madonna music…
Abel Korzeniowski, the genius composer behind the flawless soundtracks of A SINGLE MAN and Madonna’s very own W.E. revealed this week that he collaborated with Madonna for her new album too.
During a Q&A at the Cordoba International Film Music Festival, Korzeniowski revealed the news:
She came to my house again and we worked together. She’s extremely demanding and she knows what she wants, but at the same time she’s a sweet person to work with. I remember working on W.E., it was my biggest adventure.
Hopefully, their collaboration makes it to the album. I love Korzeniowski’s work.
Earlier today, Madonna revealed parts of the lyrics of REBEL HEART on her Instagram. The curious thing, is that the Queen of Pop tagged Miley Cyrus and MoZella on her post.
Following Madonna’s post, Miley Cyrus responded with a picture in which she wears a Madonna tee. Naked.
MoZella co-wrote Miley Cyrus’s hit WRECKING BALL and has been confirmed (officially) as a collaborator on Madonna’s new album.
Could these three talented women be collaborating on the song REBEL HEART? I wouldn’t be surprised.
All I know is that I’ll be like…
It seems Lady Gaga can only impress small-towners with her boring show (Hello there! Suburban soccer moms!). But every time she performs in a big city (such as NY and Chicago), the reviews she gets are far from great - and it wasn’t different in Los Angeles.
Check out some of the one-liners the L.A. Times had to say about Gaga’s show:
"Gaga has decided that the future of music is a cheaper version of Electric Daisy Carnival."
"Lady Gaga brought the confetti blasts but not the excitement Monday at Staples."
"After Lady Gaga’s Monday night concert, perhaps it’s time the artist rethink her approach."
As early as 2011, there was a sense that Gaga was losing control of her narrative, and sadly this tour seems to have cemented it. Even if you could forgive the staging, very average tracks like “Venus” and “G.U.Y.” didn’t lift off despite endless, joyless confetti blasts.
Maybe a reset is in order. Imagine three nights at Disney Hall, with just Gaga, a black dress and a baby grand. That would be better art, and such a better night out, than whatever that mess of a rave was on Monday.
Disney Hall? No way! Gaga will be playing
Vegas Reno very soon. You see, even her own fans are getting upset by her desperate antics:
The LA Times also mentioned Madonna, saying that "at least Madge had reasons to grasp for relevance in dance music subcultures" - a reference to MDNA (the album). Maybe the "reason" the author talks about is the fact that Madonna did come from the underground dance scene in NYC, who knows?
However, the most revealing aspect of it all is that Lady Gaga will always live in Madonna’s shadow - even in one of the most maligned moments of her career (the underrated MDNA album).
Speaking of Madonna and MDNA, just for kicks, here is the great review the same LA Times gave to the MDNA Tour. Read and rejoice here.
A former member of the Haus of Gaga is opening up about Lady Gaga’s obsessive and maniac behavior behind the public eye, and this time, the juicy story does not come from Jennifer O’Neill.
We received a very interesting e-mail. Whether it is legitimate or not, we cannot say. It is a good read anyways. We won’t reveal all its content (as requested by the sender), but here’s part of it. We decided to add comments to sections that we found necessary.
The new informant has recently left Gaga’s current tour and said that he was "forced out" of the tour because it’s being "downsized for the European leg." He said:
When you go on tour with a big star like Gaga, your contract is very specific, it includes everything: from the kind of catering the crew will need (some of us are vegetarian, some of us are vegan, some of us are allergic to certain foods), to the kind of accommodations we will get on the road.
A couple of weeks ago, some of us were given a new directive with the option: accept the new terms they were proposing for the remaining of the tour or the freedom to leave it without “breaking the contract.” They basically forced us out.
So far, we are not surprised by this revelation. You don’t need to be an expert to figure out that Gaga’s tour is going to be downsized in Europe. I mean, for someone who went from playing at the Stade de France three years ago to playing at a small theater with a 6,000 people capacity, the signs of her decadence were clear since the day the ARTrave tour was announced.
Granted, her tickets for the Stade de France concert were put on Groupon with a 70% discount back in 2011, but the downsizing is evident when they don’t even try booking you at an average venue. This year, Gaga’s tour in France will be two shows at the Zenith de Paris. The Zenith is a theater with a 6,293 people capacity.
Besides the obvious tour downsizing, there are some juicy details regarding Lady Gaga’s behavior, one of them being her obsession with Madonna:
Gaga’s obsession with Madonna is another thing that is very clear to everyone. It seems her obsession has only grown since the ARTPOP fiasco. She spends hours in her computer visiting Madonna-related pages. She thinks Madonna fans are always talking about her, but that’s just a projection. Gaga has an unofficial Instagram account that she uses to make comments on Madonna’s Instagram posts. She thinks the bitchy comments she leaves on Madonna’s Instagram are funny. She laughs for minutes at them. How do I know that? Gaga doesn’t even hide it. She shows people the things she writes thinking they are hilarious.
If you think Lady Gaga’s obsessive behavior stops at using an unofficial Instagram account to stalk Madonna’s, you’re wrong:
Gaga is actually very active online. She reads blogs, she searches for her name on Google, twitter, everywhere. Not a lot of people knows this, but Gaga is behind one of her own biggest fan sites on the web.
One of the biggest Gaga-fansites on the web is actually a creation of the haus of Gaga. They pretend it’s a fan site, they publish its content as if it were from a group of fans, but it’s actually a site controlled by her, where she can diss other people and pretend it’s her fans.
She is very manipulative, not in a smart way, but in a passive-aggressive way. She keeps this fansite in order to incite her own fans into badmouthing other singers. It’s the snowball effect:
Gaga uses an alias (pretending to be a devoted fan) to diss other musicians. Then she acknowledges that fan site, or gives a shoutout to her alias on twitter. Every time she acknowledges the website or a “fan”, other fans check it out. They see how she becomes “friends” with the people from that fan site, so they start acting the same way trying to get her attention. It’s areal snowball of hate and cattiness. Gaga is responsible for this fan war between her and other celebrities more than anybody else. She does it herself!
I’m inclined to believe this is true based on Lady Gaga’s online behavior. We all have witnessed Lady Gaga’s self-obsession. She has been caught replying to tweets about her when she wasn’t even tagged! She did it the other day again:
Twitter user @MadonnaRebel mentioned Gaga’s name (but didn’t tag her on it) and the ARTFLOP singer directly replied to it, proving that she searches for her own name on the social network:
And do we need to remind you that when Lady Gaga was caught lying about her “sold out” show using a picture of a Metallica concert she turned her anger to Madonna fans?
Yes, as far as Gaga’s self-obsession and Madonna-obsession go, this e-mail seems legit. Her public behavior is the very evidence of its veracity.
Lady Gaga is described as a poisonous person. According to this e-mail, she infects everyone around her with her negativity:
I’ve worked with other famous musicians. That’s what I do for a living. I’ve been working as an assistant and artistic creator for almost a decade now. I’ve never seen anything like this. On this tour, the air backstage is very heavy. There is a very negative vibe there. You can feel it in the air.
At another moment, the entire team is described as the “Mean Girls:”
They’re all fake there at the “haus.” Being around Gaga is not healthy. Her team is vicious and they are always backstabbing each other. It’s like the movie Mean Girls, except that they are all around 30.
And if you dream of working for Lady Gaga (this goes for the little monsters who read my blog). Think again:
You can never be truly creative, and most importantly, you will never be given credit for your work. If you share a good idea with Gaga, you will see her going around saying she created this or that. She never acknowledges that the people around her are the force behind her act. Except when something goes wrong. When something does go as planned, or the critics don’t like it, she will be the first to come to you and blame you for the failure.
I’ve seen her yelling at other people stuff like “I don’t pay you to make me look bad,” “your ideas suck,” or even threaten them with “you will never work in the entertainment business again.” She likes to humiliate people and fire them in front of others. She needs to show she’s the boss all the time. It’s a very stressful environment to work in even for people like me. I’m used to celebrities and their crazy behavior, but I feel really bad for the young people starting their careers as Pas with Gaga. She makes people cry on a regular basis. She is hardly ever happy with herself and she ensures that everyone around her is just as miserable.
And if you think Gaga’s vicious behavior stops with the less known people in her team, you’re wrong again. She allegedly mistreats everyone around her:
If you paid attention, you might have noticed that some of the people that used to go around getting involved in Twitter wars defending Gaga’s honor are not doing it anymore. Tara Savelo, DJ White Shadow, Lady Starlight, they all have gone online to defend Gaga in the past. They don’t do that anymore.
I have personally witnessed Lady Gaga being extremely rude to Savelo and Starlight in different occasions. She once told Starlight in front of everyone that her opening act was getting too much attention, that she needed to “tone it down" or she would be out of the tour. Next thing you know, Starlight was just DJing and not trying one of her “performance art” acts.
Well, one thing we can’t deny: Tara Savelo, Lady Starlight, and
my best friend DJ White Shadow (he forgot to add Perry Meek and Terry Richardson) have definitely been quiet lately.
I don’t recall seeing them dissing anybody else (especially Madonna) on Gaga’s behalf in a long time - and they all have, indeed, done it:
In my opinion, this e-mail points out things that are easily verifiable. I’m inclined to believe all this is true. What about you? Do you think Gaga is a nice person? Do you think this e-mail is legit? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
Lady Gaga’s amateurish, awkward and imprecise ”chair” choreography is even funnier when you have the right soundtrack playing.
The contrast between Madonna’s spot-on “A Clockwork Orange” and Bob Fosse’s “Cabaret” inspired routine for “Keep It Together” and Lady Gaga’s clumsiness will make you laugh.
Blond Ambition” this is NOT!”
And that’s the difference between an amateur and a professional dancer, a talented stage performer who always does it right and gets it right.
Lady Gaga can call herself a "gay icon" and a gay supporter as much and as loud as she can, but gay men, clearly, can make up their own minds regarding who they’re favorite and more reliable celebrity is.
According to Variety, Gay males have crowned talkshow personality Ellen DeGeneres their most admired celebrity, and have singled out her recent pitch work with Maybelline as the advertising campaign they liked most in the past year.
Variety surveyed approximately 3,000 respondents. The survey entailed asking gay males to name the three celebrities they most and least admired. the results? Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Brad Pitt and Channing Tatum were identified as this group’s least admired celebrities.
I am glad gay men are finally waking up and seeing Lady Gaga for what she really is. She is not nice. She does not represent the gay community. And she, most definitely, does not get involved with the community for charity. She simply is not admirable at all.
This calls for a double celebration: not only gay males don’t admire Lady Gaga as much as she believes they do, but this happened a few months after she released her latest album. This survey was taken while Gaga was amidst heavy promotion for ARTFLOP, touring North America! Still, the market she so artificially gets involved with does not think she is admirable. That’s just AWESOME NEWS!
Poor Gaga! Her gays have left the
building haus. First, she gets the news that she got no nominations for the MTV VMAs, then she finds out she’s one of the least favorite celebrities among gay men? Time for another meltdown.
Read more about this survey on Variety.
It’s recently come to my attention, that if I had a dollar for every number one hit Lady Gaga has ever had, I’d ONLY have US $3.
Isn’t that sad?
That makes you wonder: what are her fans bragging about? Three number one hits in six years? Oh, God! That’s an embarrassment!
From 2008 to 2014 (six years), only these three songs by Lady Gaga reached the number one position of the Billboard Hot 100 chart:
1) Just Dance
2) Porker Face
3) Flop This Way
It’s an embarrassment to go around calling Lady Gaga a “queen" when she couldn’t even beat Paula Abdul (she’s had six number one hits).
Speaking of "a" queen, let’s talk about "the" Queen:
From 1983 to 1989 (six years), Madonna had SEVEN NUMBER ONE HITS on Billboard Hot 100. SEVEN. That’s more than twice the number of #1s Lady Gaga’s had.
Besides having more than twice the number of #1 hits Lady Gaga’s had in her first six years, Madonna’s songs also impress because of their quality and staying power.
Here are the seven number one hits Madonna’s managed to achieve from 1983 to 1989. Notice that most of them are now classic pop tunes, songs that are part of our cultural identity, whereas none of those Gaga songs had the power to remain culturally relevant. Even though they are much more recent, they’re already almost completely forgotten.
1) Like a Virgin
2) Crazy For You
3) Live to Tell
4) Papa Don’t Preach
5) Open Your Heart
6) Who’s That Girl
7) Like a Prayer
Needless to say, it was much more difficult to get a number one hit back then. For starters, there was no such thing as an individual track digital download. Today, people can buy a single track for $1.29 (sometimes $0.99), and it will count towards the charts. People don’t even need to get out of their houses to buy a song. They can be on their toilet and simply push a button to buy a song on their smartphones!
Back in the 80s, people actually needed to get out of their houses, drive down to a record store, buy a compact disc, drive back home, to finally listen to it. And what about radio airplay requests? People actually had to dial the number of a radio station, wait for somebody to pick up the phone, and then place a request. Today, you fill up a field on a radio station’s website and it automatically sends your request. Easy and effortless. But still, Lady Gaga’s only had three number one hits on Billboard’s Hot 100.
I wouldn’t be bragging about Lady Gaga’s achievements if she was my fave… Oh, well… her fans are as mediocre and average as Stefani Germanotta herself. It’s understandable when you put it this way.
Australian primary and official big concerts ticket seller Ticketek added Madonna to their waitlist this week. Rumors of a Madonna Australian tour have been getting stronger and stronger these days.
Unlike Madonna’s previous few tours, this time, she could be opening her next world tour in Australia or somewhere in Asia, then make her way back to the western world, stopping by Europe halfway through it. Russia and South America might be off her itinerary this time.
Madonna hasn’t been back to Australia since 1993. And the last time she toured in Japan was in 2006. Time to go make those fans happy again!
Rock God and the most awesome of all guitarists in the planet, Monte Pittman said that “Madonna’s new album is really awesome” when someone asked about it:
He also said this on twitter:
Rumor has it that the song Madonna has been teasing us, Messiah, is the theme song for the movie The Giver, based on the novel written by Lois Lowry, starring Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Swift and more…
Here’s a trailer for the movie, which is being released by the Weinstein Company (the same ones that released Madonna’s W.E.):
And this is what we know of Messiah through Madonna’s Instagram account:
What do you think?
Can we say Oscar and Golden Globe for original song for Madonna now or is it too soon?
You know that girl is great with ballads…
A couple of days ago we published the following picture of Lady Gaga’s empty concert in Toronto:
We used this picture as a supporting evidence to the argument that, when Gaga isn’t playing at music festivals in Canada, no one cares about her in the land of the maple syrup.
As expected, many of her moronic fans said we were "lying," that Gaga’s concert was "sold out" there, bla bla bla…
Well, I just saw these videos and I decided to share them with you. I find it very hard for Gaga fans to say her show was "sold out" there in Toronto with a straight face.
Is it just me, or even Lady Gaga’s band sound amateurish?
I mean, I don’t even think I need to point out how amateurish Gaga (herself) is: she sounds, acts, and dances like a mediocre student performing at a mediocre high school musical.
But even her band sounds bad. Maybe it’s the arrangement. But then you think: it’s a fucking Gaga song! No matter the arrangement given to it, it will always sound amateurish. If not, it will sound reductive, with a familiar melody, but made simple, easier to digest. Watered down.
The most embarrassing thing about it all? It’s not her fans denying it was empty. It’s not Lady Gaga’s amateurish performance skills. It’s not her unoriginal music. It’s the fact that not even the few fans that showed up to her concert are dancing / having fun at her show.
[That’s Madonna in the middle of a sea of people in her latest concert tour].
Gaga couldn’t sell out her ONLY show in Toronto (as these videos prove it to you). Madonna had two sold out shows there the last time she was in town.
In fact, the last time Madonna was on tour, she had seven shows in Canada - they were all her own shows (not performances at music festivals). They were also all sold out.
On the other hand, Gaga has six shows scheduled in Canada this year - the only successful ones were the ones she performed as an act in the middle of a music festival - with other artists performing in the same day and with tickets cheaper than her own shows.
R-E-D-U-C-T-I-V-E, yes, indeed.
Why does she even try?
Remember the Menudos? The famous Latin boy band that revealed stars like Ricky Martin?
Well, a video featuring a former Menudo, Angelo Garcia, singing Madonna's Live to Tell is making the rounds on the internet. Check it out. it’s fucking awesome and disturbing at the same time.
The muscles, the dog, the expression… I love it all. Sort of.
Hello! This is lilmonsteravila. As you can tell, he’s a little monster (physically and metaphorically). Yesterday, he learned a valuable lesson. He learned about the power of Paws Down Little Monster.
He started a public campaign against us on his Instagram account. He tagged us, and he invited other little monsters to spam and report our page.
He thought he would piss us off. He thought he would get us out of Instagram. Little did he know that Paws Down Little Monsters is not one or two people. It’s a movement (we are everywhere).
Lilmonsteravila and friends thought they would change us with their spamming and non-sense - mostly of what this guy did was quote Lady Gaga songs - LOL (yeah, I know)! Did they change us? Did they succeed?
Let’s see… our Instagram is still strong, our pictures are still open for everyone to see. Our opinion about Lady Gaga, her amateurish act and dishonest ways is still the same. So is our opinion of her butt-ugly, intellectually weak fans. But what about lilmonsteravila?
Oh, well, he couldn’t handle criticism. He turned his Instagram account “private"as soon as he started feeling the heat of our kitchen (or of our street, if you prefer).
I guess it comes with the territory: if you’re a Lady Gaga fan, you have got to be weak, a whining little bitch, and play the victim every chance you get. Just now (and just like Lady Gaga herself), lilmonsteravila whined about us bringing criticism toward him. He is so stupid, he doesn’t see that that happened after he tagged us on his account, calling our attention to it. We didn’t even know that such a butt-ugly person like himself existed (besides Lady Gaga, of course)!
Lesson learned: don’t want to be annoyed by the legion of people who dislike Lady Gaga? Don’t go around spamming our pages, or tagging us on your pictures. I know! It’s such a basic notion, but Lady Gaga’s “retarded” and “moronic” fans just don’t get it: if you don’t want the attention, to bring it to yourselves. But if you do decide to mess with us, don’t complain about the heat.
Meanwhile, let’s celebrate the fact that we are a success. We have, once again, succeeded in distracting little monsters from Lady Gaga!
Instead of watching Gaga’s shitty videos on YouTube, or working to buy her shitty singles on iTunes, these little monsters spent their day (some of them are still doing it) on our Instagram account, involved in arguments and being distracted from things that could help save Lady Gaga’s declining career.
So thank you little monsters, for being the living proof that our work on Paws Down Little Monsters is a success. Thank you all for proving that we are famous among the Lady Gaga fan base. Thank you for for showing us how annoyed you all are. And please, keep visiting our pages. Because that’s how we know we have won: once you get paws-down’d, you will always come back for more. Once you know about us, you will always come back to check what we are saying about your failed idol.
Lady Gaga is flopping way harder than her own floppy, saggy breasts.
Following her performances in music festivals in Canada, the singer is back at her far from sell out shows in North America.
Case in point: when it isn’t a music festival, Gaga’s shows seem to be pretty EMPTY!
Let’s take a look at her show in TORONTO:
If you think this picture might not give you a clear idea of how EMPTY Lady Gaga’s concert was in Toronto, check out this video:
As we explained before, people couldn’t care less about Lady Gaga in Canada:
Her latest album didn’t even go #1 there. It wasn’t even #2! Gaga never drew big crowds to her concerts in Canada, not even when she was at her peak (back in 2009). Imagine now!
The problem with mother monster isn’t only in Canada. Right below the US-Canada border lies a town called Chicago. And how was Lady Gaga’s concert there?
Amidst embarrassing numbers that show an alarming decline in the public’s interest (Gaga’s current tour has been attracting a smaller attendance than the previous one), what is left for Lady Gaga to do?
LIE about her shows!
What was the last lie she told the public and her gullible, naive (not to say “stupid”) fans?
She’s celebrating 90,000 people at "her" concert in Quebec:
"#artraveQuebec," she said under a picture of a massive crowd she swore turned up to see her show.
The problem is:
This wasn’t HER concert, THIS WAS A MUSIC FESTIVAL in which Lady Gaga was just ONE of SEVERAL ARTISTS who took the stage at the Plains of Abraham in Quebec.
This is the FESTIVAL D’ÉTÉ DE QUÉBEC, it’s a Summer Festival, and here’s their official page showing Gaga’s concert at the festival (the same one she’s celebrating as “her own” show):
If that’s not EMBARRASSING enough, Lady Gaga goes even lower:
That picture she used on her official Instagram isn’t even of her show! It’s of a 2011 METALLICA show!
Gaga is not only desperate, but she’s demented and sick!
Check out the pictures below and compare the two images: the Metallica show and what Lady Gaga says it’s hers:
Embarrassing, ain’t it?
Lady Gaga simply added some effects to a picture of a 2011 Metallica concert and said it was hers, celebrating all “her” fans that showed up.
Here, compare them again, in case you’re still in denial (this goes for her little monsters):
You can find the original Metallica photos on your own, just google "Metallica Quebec" to find them for yourselves.
As for Lady Gaga, she keeps digging a deeper hole for herself. She wasn’t too happy about being called out on her lies:
This girl is so pathetic, instead of owing up to it and admitiing she lied, she acts as if she’s being the victim here, and the abusers? Madonna fans.
Lady Gaga’s head is so far up her own ass, she can’t stand being told the truth:
Those people in the crowd were there for a MUSIC FESTIVAL, NOT for a Lady Gaga show!
Friday, July 4th, the day Lady Gaga celebrated an audience of 90,000 people, she shared the Bell Stage with TWO other artists: Marco G and Tegan and Sara.
And here, we are showing the Bell Stage alone! But there were OTHER STAGES in the same day, with other artists performing at the Plains of Abraham. And still, Lady Gaga is the only one going around saying these people were there for the “#artraceQuebec.”
Besides, who’d believe 90,000 people showed up for a Lady Gaga concert in Canada? She’s not even big there! ARTFLOP didn’t even go #1 there. Not even #2!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a Madonna fan or not, the truth is out there, and Lady Gaga is a liar.
Needless to say, Queen of Pop Madonna played at the same venue with her MDNA Tour. The difference between Gaga’s and Madonna’s concerts at the Plains of Abraham in Quebec?
MADONNA had thousands and thousands of people there to see HER SHOW, she wasn’t a part of a festival. She carried it all on her own, unlike Lady Gaga, who’s just part of a big music festival with several other artists.
No wonder Lady Gaga’s so bitter towards Madonna. She can’t beat her even when she tries hard.
